Qatar, GCC and regional military project

Qatari Emir Tamim did not attend the 40th GCC summit meeting that was held yesterday (10/12/19) in Riyadh.

Instead, Qatari PM Sheikh Abdullah Bin Nasser Bin Khalifa Al-Thani headed the Qatari delegation to the summit meeting.

There was talk at the summit meeting about the necessity of setting up a regional military project to face Iran’s threats.

However, Qatar is said to have no intention to contribute to any regional military cooperation project before the ongoing Saudi-led blockade imposed on the country is completely removed.

What about Qatar’s reaction?

Has it to do with Qatar’s relations with Iran?

These key questions and more are answered in the following 346-word news report.
